“McCain, Giuliani would be disastrous for GOP”

That according to Tom Tancredo (R-CO) in an article from WorldNetDaily.

Tancredo explains:

“Both of those individuals, of course, would be disastrous for us for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is their position on immigration, which is to open the border,” Tancredo told WND in an exclusive interview. “I will do everything I can – whether I’m a candidate for president or just as a member of Congress – I will do everything I can to make sure those two names are not the only options that people have.”

One can only hope Tancredo will not let the border security/illegal immigration issue die.


Tancredo continues:

“As I’ve said before, if no one rises to the bait maybe – and that bait being the immigration issue – if no one will take it on, I guarantee you I will do it. Right now, I have not seen anyone who I think can go the distance who has taken that on. I’m telling you it certainly looks more and more like that’s a distinct possibility. And I’m not being coy, I just don’t know for sure. We have to take a careful look at it because for one thing, you don’t want to hurt the issue itself. You do not want to have a problem with doing it, and if you don’t do well, then people will say, ‘Look, if Tancredo didn’t do well in X state, that means that the issue is of no great value.'”

I have to agree with Tancredo, both McCain and Giuliani have been wishy washy on the immigration issue. In fact, McCain has been downright indignant supporting health care for illegals in Arizona hospitals. Giuliani gives the typical “immigrants do the jobs Americans won’t do”. That saying makes me want to spit it’s so absurd.

Tancredo will be the thorn in the side of weak Republicans.
